One Spaniard Down Already (partly…)

12 Mar

So my T.V. Coverage of Indian Wells hasn’t even started yet and already Feliciano is out of the singles 😦 But I have just read that he is playing doubles today with… wait for it… Milos Raonic (?! – I can’t be the only one who finds that a little surprising/odd/confusing, can I?). Anyways they’ll play the Bryans around 9pm tonight (5am Sunday in the UK) on Stadium 3.

David, Rafa and Fernando are also in singles action today. Rafa will face Russian qualifier, Rik de Voest around 5pm (1am Sunday in the UK) on Stadium 1. Also, Rafa & Marc Lopez won their doubles match against, Fyrstenberg & Matkowski yesterday. Fernando will face wild card, Richard Berankis on Stadium 2 at 11am today (7pm tonight in the UK). And last but definitely not least, David will face Croatin, Ivo Karlovic on Stadium 3 at around 1pm (9pm tonight in the UK).

VAMOS CHICOS!

Third Rubber: Fer & Feli vs. Darcis & Rochus

Better late than never I guess… sorry guys 😦 Anyways Feli and Fer won as I’m sure you are all aware by now. They won 7-6, 6-4, 6-3. In the dead rubbers (best of 3 sets & sadly no pics) Rafa won against Rochus 6-4, 6-2 and Feli lost 7-6, 6-7, 6-7. Spain will face the USA away from home in the quarters. Well Done Chicos!!
